Hunter 04-19 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

My name is HUNTER – I am a 10 year-old miniature schnauzer – without the schnauzer haircut. But, my foster mom says I’m a handsome dude – even without it! I have just been recently diagnosed with diabetes. I am now on a special food diet and 2 shots of insulin a day. That’s it – that’s all you have to do to keep me happy and healthy! It’s as easy as that!
My foster mom say... HUNTER is a kind, sweet, and affectionate gentleman. He is a home surrender and very well socialized and laid back. He is very happy hanging out on the sofa with his people – and loves to go for walks and car rides. He gets along well with the other dogs (and cats) in the house – he barks at the cats but never really bothers them. He needs a fenced yard – and extra potty breaks. Diabetes makes him drink more – and, of course, need to go more. If you have a doggy door to the yard that would be awesome! He’s not much of a barker, but he will let you know when he sees or hears something near his home!
HUNTER is in a foster home in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is microchipped, neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations. He is heartworm negative and current on preventatives.
If you are looking for a new fur kid send in an adoption application with HUNTER’s name on it. You will be glad you did!

His adoption fee is only $225.

Lucylee 06-29 Schnauzer • Senior • Female • Small

Hi, my name is Lucylee and I’m a schnauzer girl. I’m 18 pounds of sweetness. I’m in rescue because my mom thought it was best for me because she was in poor health. I’m living in Florence Kentucky with my foster family that has a couple of older children and I have a fur brother. I am house trained and good with other dogs and older children. I am not sure about cats. I ride excellent in the car and walk perfectly on a leash. I have been to see the vet. I’ve had my teeth cleaned and I’m up to date on all my shots and I’m microchipped. Nobody is sure of my exact age, but the vet thinks I’m around 14, but I act much younger. Because of my age I don’t hear very well but that doesn’t stop me from doing all the things I love doing like chasing birds and squirrels. My favorite thing to do is just hang out in the back yard, and for that reason a fenced yard is a must.  In the evening you will usually find me curled up in one of our dog beds or on my foster mom’s lap. She thinks I’m the sweetest thing around.
If you think we would make a good fit, just fill out an application for me.
Thanks for reading my bio.

My adoption fee is only $250.

Chewy 10-58 Schnauzer • Senior • Male • Small

Hi, my name is Chewy! I’m 12 years old, and love my new foster family! My story is short... I had a good home most of my life, but my family had to move far away and couldn’t take me with them. I was put in a shelter, and not doing well. I was very sad! Fortunately Schnauzer Rescue me from the shelter. I visited the doggy doctor, got a grooming, and bath. I had a dental, and had six teeth remove. Boy! Do I feel better! I run and play with my three sister’s. I love the fenced yard, and watching TV. My favorite channel is “Animal Planet”! Every time wild animals run across I get excited and bark at them! I’m a happy boy!
I do have a little problem, I have a little arthritis in my back, and a little incontinence. So I wear a belly band and everything is good! I am also, hard of hearing.
I’m U-T-D on all my shots, and microchipped. I would do best with someone that works from home, or is retired. A fenced yard would be great! No small kids please. I get along with other dogs, and love to sleep with my foster Mom! I’m being foster in St. Louis, Mo by Sherry.

See me in action!

My adoption fee is only $200.

Harmony 1-02 Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

Hi all My name is Harmony, but my foster mom calls me Miss Happyface.  I am a 2 year old Schnauzer girl, who is just full of life and energy. What’s a cute kid like me doing in rescue? Well someone had me for sale on FB and after something called sharing, Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati reached out to take me in. I’m so glad they did... Who KNOWS where I might have ended up?!
I recently met the doggie doctor and received a physical, all my shots, and a little procedure so I won’t have babies. What a relief that was.
I am now enjoying my foster home, other dogs, and even a cat. I’m almost potty trained – still a work in progress. I’m also still trying to figure out this leash thing... I think I like the fenced yard the best.
My most favorite thing to do is be with my person. I love to follow her around the house, and I jump in her lap every time I have the chance.
She even took the time to knit me a sweater. This foster life is pretty great!
I am now ready to find a furever family were I can settle in. If you feel you'd be a good fit for me, please fill out an application for Harmony. Pleae, no small kids.

Seth 03-13 Pending Schnauzer • Puppy • Male • Small


Seth is 7 month old.
So I know you curious, what’s such a handsome kid like me doing without a family. Well... To make a long story short, my owner was a breeder. When he found out I hade a grade 6 heart murmur, he dumped me at the vet to be Euthanized. Lucky for me, they knew of a rescue who could help me out.
Since I’ve been in rescue, things have moved kind of fast. I have had my heart surgery and my grade 6 heart murmur is gone! I feel great! I am up-to-date on all my shots, on prevention for heart-worm and fleas. I have a follow up appointment soon so that I can be scheduled for my neuter.
I spend most of my day playing with my foster brothers. I love running in the yard, playing with my toys, and just simply going for walks. I am a smart boy and very food driven.
I am now ready to find my forever family.
As you can see, I’m a very cute kid, and I have a super personality. If you think I would be a great addition to your family please fill out an application for me.
I am 12lbs, crate trained, housebroken, up-to-date on all shots, and microchipped!


Seth is a great example of what SRC does for the Schnauzer breed! As stated in his bio SRC saved his life with heart surgery. What we don’t say is his medical bills ran over $4000.00 dollars!!! His adoption fee of $600.00 covers only a small portion. Where does the other $3400.00 come from? Donations... Without supporters donating funds, dogs like Seth would never have a chance, and families like your would never receive the love of a schnauzer like Seth. Please help SRC continue to save a wonderful breed, and puppies like Seth, Please Donate!

My adoption fee is $600.

Trina 03-14 Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

Hi! My name is Trina, but my foster moms call me Little Bear. They tell me I look just like a teddy bear, whatever that is. I’m 5 years old. My first mom had to move away to a nursing home, and her neighbor promised she would find me a good home. That’s when Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati stepped in, and I am really glad! I am housebroken and I know my name. I LOVE the fenced back yard and all its smells. I honor my terrier heritage by barking at squirrels and next door dogs.
I’m protective of myself – I wish I could tell you why. I don’t like to be picked up, and I don’t like the groomer. I will jump up on the chair or bed to be close to you. I love love love attention, even though I’m not a snuggler. I keep trying to talk to people – it kinda sounds like growling, but I’m not mad. I love rides in the car, and at night I trot right into my crate to sleep.
Trina is up to date on shots, neutered, and microchipped. She walks well on a leash, and would be happiest as the only dog in the house.

My adoption fee is $350.

Owen 03-17 Corgi Pomeranian Mix • Adult • Male • Small

Meet Owen! Owen is a Corgi Pomeranian mix about 4 years old. He is house broken.  He is very respectful and quiet in the home He has a calm disposition, yet perky and playful. He can be a little shy and timid at first, however quickly warms up. Don’t let those cute short Corgi legs fool you, he enjoys running and exploring, and chasing squirrels in the back yard. Therefore he would prefer a fenced back yard. He comes happily when called from the back yard. He prefers not to be picked up. And at times likes to find a quiet moment burrowed under the bed (probably the Corgi in him). He is very attentive and appreciative of his current home and wants to please you. In the evening he enjoys curling up on the couch with you. If this sounds like the little guy for you, don’t hesitate to make him a fur-ever home.

My adoption fee is $450.

Tai 03-18 Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer Poodle Mix • Adult • Female • Small


Hi, my name is Tai (pronounced Tie). I am a 10-year old schnauzer-poodle mix and all lap dog! I am UTD on shots, neutered, heartworm negative, and housebroken. I recently had a dental and got quite a few icky teeth removed so I’m feeling much better and am otherwise healthy.

I was surrendered to the shelter due to a military relocation. I had one home my entire life so that was a bit scary. Fortunately, Schnauzer Rescue of Cincinnati came to my rescue. I’m loving foster life but really want my forever family!

Did you see how cute I am? I have floppy ears and very soft, curly hair. It’s like petting a stuffed animal. Did I mention I like pets? Attention, really. I LOVE attention. I just want to curl up on your lap and hang. My foster mom works from home and I have no problem jumping on her chair and lap to help her. Isn’t work better with a dog on your lap?! I must admit that I can get a little whiny if I’m not getting attention, but I have superb cuddling skills. I’m very friendly with both people and other pups.

Fill out an application for Tai if you’re looking for a snuggle bug and friendly companion!

Jace 04-21 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

Hello! My name is Jace. I am approximately 8.5 years old, UTD on shots, heartworm negative, neutered, housebroken, and crate trained. I recently had a dental where they removed a few bad teeth. My vet check was otherwise clean and healthy.

What’s an adorable looking pup like me doing in rescue? Well, I’m not sure to be honest. I was found as a stray and taken to the shelter. No one ever came to get me, so Schnauzer Rescue of Cincinnati answered the call and here I am looking for my fur-ever home.

I am well-behaved, very sweet, and get along great with the other three schnauzers in my foster home. I’d do best with older children and walk well on a leash.

I’m a simple guy, really. I like to eat treats, hang out with my humans, and get petted. What else do you need in life? I’m pretty laid back and would do well in most environments as long as there is love, snuggles, and food. Plus, did you see how cute I am??

If you’re interested in Jace joining your family, fill out an application! He is being fostered in Cincinnati by Jim and Kristy.

My adoption fee is $350.

Nikki 04-22 Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

My name is NIKKI – I am a three year-old miniature schnauzer. I lived the first two years of my life in an outdoor breeder kennel, so I didn’t get much attention. One day a nice lady from Schnauzer Rescue came and took me (and my friend Joey) to her house! What a surprise! I was scared at first but I sure did like my new foster home. There were toys, kids, kitties and other dogs there. It took me a few days to get used to being inside but after a few days I felt safe and started checking the place out.
My foster mom says... NIKKI is very sweet and affectionate. If you lift her up on the sofa she will be your cuddle buddy for as long as you want! But she has some trust issues, and needs a lot of patience and a kind hand at first. When you meet her you will see what I mean. Everything most dogs do naturally is scary to her – Even going in and out the door to the backyard – but she adapts quickly and before you know it she will put her trust in you. She is potty trained and crate trained. She will drag a leash around with no problem, but she needs some encouragement walking with it. She does very well with the other dogs in the house, and barks at the cats but never bothers them. She loves to play with the resident dogs, and she will empty the toy box as often as you allow her to! She loves her toys!! She would do well with older kids (7-10 years).
NIKKI is in a foster home in Indianapolis, Indiana. She is microchipped, spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations. She is heartworm negative and current on preventatives.
If you are looking for a new fur kid send in an adoption application with Nikki’s name on it. You will be glad you did!

My adoption fee is $450.
